Being a super-successful manager requires the finesse of a politician, the relationship skills of a psychologist, and the public speaking gifts of an actor, and all before lunch every working day. Managing people, like managing companies, means motivating, evaluating, communicating, resolving, presenting, and leading. The Unofficial Guide to Power Managing contains all the secrets and inside scoop that managers need to rev up their employees and their businesses.

Here's where managers aiming for the top find no-nonsense tips on
* Helping others to motivate themselves -- and what to do when empowerment fails
* Why the best salesperson shouldn't be the sales manager
* Negotiating successfully without resorting to weapons
* Leadership style -- there's no perfect one, except for despots
* Winning strategies -- and why most fail, even though the tactics succeed
